India's Renewable Energy Sources Account For 19 Per Cent Of Installed Capacity

- Nov 15, 2017-

China energy storage network: according to Mercom capital group, renewable energy accounts for 19 percent of India's installed capacity by the end of September.

Reference to India's new energy and renewable energy, the central electricity board, Mercom capital said, to the end of September, India, renewable energy generation capacity has reached 62.5 gw, the country's electricity a total installed capacity of 333.5 gw.

Coal is still the largest source of electricity, accounting for 58% of the electricity capacity and second in renewables, according to the data.

The third is hydropower, which accounts for 13 per cent and installed 44.8 gigawatts.

Renewable energy capacity includes 32.7 gigawatts of wind power, accounting for 10% of the total power capacity.

In addition, the solar capacity exceeds 17 gigawatts, accounting for 5% of the total capacity.

In the first nine months of 2017, the new operating pv capacity exceeds 7 gigawatts, accounting for 39% of the new capacity, followed by wind power, accounting for 21.8%.

Mercom capital says India's new capacity for renewable energy is growing, and its capacity is slipping.

To remove a general trend, some specific conditions, such as growing photovoltaic component prices and possible anti-dumping duties, solar sector activity decreased, resulting in a decline in expectations of next year's new solar power plant.
